# Triangle area

## Description

Triangle is a polygon with three edges and three vertices. The area of a triangle with base length b and height length h is given by multiplying base length times height length. The term “base” denotes any side, and “height” denotes the length of a perpendicular from the vertex opposite the side onto the line containing the side itself. (This formula is only useful if the height can be readily found).
